I was considering buying an mp3 player, this would be the first one, and I did a lot of research. I was looking at the Sony HD1, the Creative 30gb Zen Xtra, the Iriver one, and this one. When I learned that the Creative player usually fell apart between one and two years, I decided against it. All of the Hard Drive based players that I looked at had internal batteries and therefore, after about a year, the battery life was shot and the player was useless. Therefore, I decided that I needed a replaceable battery player.
This small player 3" x 1.3" x 1" has all of the features I wanted, and is fairly easy to use. In my winXP computer, I could transfer mp3's into folders on the device and each folder acted as an album. There was no software to install. In the player, you can navigate to different folders, and then play those folders or indevidual songs in those folders.
Unlike the sony player, this player will play MP3's any way you have them on your PC, this means VBR mp3's too.
Also, unlike the Creative player, you can choose to have the player display information from the ID3 tags, or from the file name, so if your mp3s aren't set up well, its no problem.
The buttons are a littel confusing in the begining, but after 5min, I could use it perfectly. Also, it can be used left handed to right handed, the LCD rotates.
There are many play modes that you might want like Shuffle and Repeat. These are all easy to use. Overall, a very nice player. I would buy again. 1gb is enough space to switch files in and out, and since the battery wont die like a HD model, and the HD wont die either, I think it's the best choice.

I bought this player a couple of weeks back and am satisified for the most part with its performance. I bought it for $140 and for that price range there was nothing that I could find in the marketplace matching its feature set.

What I like about it:

1) Affordable and reasonable build quality.

2) Good sound quality

3) Plug and play HD for Windows and Mac

4) FM Player works well though I hear some ocassional static which I think may be due to a reception problem indoors.

5) I have used it for about 4 hrs and I still see 2 bars. On a single AAA I think thats quite allright

What I don't like:

1) Recorder was a big disappointment. I hear constant static all through the recording that renders it pretty much useless.

2) Menu structure is rather complicated, but reading the manual helped.

3) Headphones too big for my ears but quality is quite allright.

In summary if you don't care much for the voice recorder feature and all you need is a player that can double up as an mp3 player, fm player and a plug and play hard drive this is the player for you.

If recording quality is important look elsewhere.

After reviewing many differant players, I decided on the Sandisk

1GB, one for the price, two for size, and three for ease of use.

The the money spent on this toy, I enjoy it tremendisly. I cant tell you how easy it is to use. I was a little worried about the plastic case, and wasnt too crazy about the cover, but, I've been using it steady everday for three weeks without any problems. Loading songs, scrolling throught the menu, whatever I do, its simple to do. I am in the 40 year age bracket, and althought kids may need more space for there music, I find the size of this is perfect. I would recommend it to anyone that wants to tune out office noise and enjoy the sounds of your own little world.

This small flash-based MP3 player is the Honda Accord of MP3 players. It isn't the best or the prettiest but it has tremendous value. The FM radio, 1GB memory, and arm band/case are all included for $10-20 less than the 1GB iPod Shuffle. This is the best value of the flash-based players. If money were no object, I'd seriously consider iRiver.

- Easy loading of MP3 files
- Digital FM tuner w/20 presets
- Doubles as a USB storage device
- Many configurable options
- Right or Left handed display support
- Inexpensive
- Small and lightweight (1.4 ounces w/battery)
- Includes arm band and see-thru case
- USB 2.0
- Good battery life (~15 hours)
- Replaceable battery
- Firmware upgradeable

- User interface is not intuitive
- Buttons are located in somewhat awkward positions
- Lacks paper manual, but includes Quick Start Guide
- Lacks support of OGG files
- Lacks playlist support (despite Amazon's description)

I am the last of all of my friends and family to own a mass storage MP3 player. My sister and cousin both have iPod's. My best friend has a Creative Labs Zen and my wife a Rio Carbon. I had 2 players previously that supported under 96MB of storage. With everyone jumping on the iPod wagon, I was just waiting for the right time to throw my hat in the ring. After I decided against disk-based jukebox players, the decision was quite easy.

I considered 3 flash-based players very seriously. The iPod Shuffle, SanDisk 1GB player, and a 1GB iRiver. I had actually gone into the San Francisco Apple store to buy a Shuffle but received less than stellar service so postponed my purchase.
